"Muay Boran is the name that describes the Thai nation’s traditional martial arts of fighting. Dating back thousands of years, at the birth of the Thai nation. Starting from the tribe of Thai people who had to constantly fight to protect themselves against their aggressors in the South of China before moving South East to settle in ancient Siam, which we now call Thailand. Along the way the Thai people have developed the fighting arts to combine with hand held weapons such as long swords, poles and spears. Also to use parts of the body such as fists, elbows, knees, and kicks to gain advantage against their opponents, when their weapons are lost in close combat fights during war times. In peace time a system was developed to organize contests to choose the best of the warriors who were then selected as the King’s guards. Now, in modern days Muaythai is known as a sport worldwide. …Nowadays some of the techniques have been forgotten due to certain moves no longer being allowed to be used in the ring, for both commercial and safety reasons. These can still be used effectively in self defense." - Extract from the Preface of 'To Art of Muay Boran' by Mr. Chinawut Sirisompan (Grand Master Woody)
